SINN Chronograph Tachymeter Limited Edition

By TLex Straight to the money shot - of the lovely high-domed Acrylic crystal that Sinn's new Limited Edition Chrono Tachymeter is fitted with.

This old school beauty, which Sinn has made for their German domestic market is also home to a Valjoux 7750 self-winding movement with 25 jewels, 28,800 vibrations per hour, and stop seconds. It is shockproof according to DIN 8308 and has an anti-magnetic shield that complies with DIN 8309.

Further divers' features include: a unidirectional rotational divers / pilot's bezel with luminous marker at 12 o'clock and elapsed dive-time, a screw-down crown and and caseback and vintage-style faded orange luminous applied hands and markers.

Its case which measures 41mm x 15.5mm is water-resistant to 20bar or 200m according to DIN 8310. It has been finished with a high-polish. The caseback is bead-blasted.

Functions include: Hours, minutes, small seconds, date display and stop seconds. It has a triple graduated tachymeter scale in spiral form for the reading of average speeds of 20 km / h to 300 km / h. It comes on a very lovely looking vintage-style brown leather strap priced 1350euro.

Yeah, I know it's not really a 'diver', but let's say the pilot has to bail out over the ocean, he'd still be pretty well equipped when reached water, right? And it's such an attractive looking watch, I had to post it!
